Keybead is a spherical glass bead.
Glass beads are generally used for polishing and light abrasive cleaning. It is best used at low pressure in cabinets and blast rooms where it can be recycled efficiently.

Glass bead is a perfect abrasive for polishing metal work, like unpainted aluminium and giving a sheen to a majority of metals. It is often used in the food industry, on large machinery, and windturbine blades.

Glass bead is also used in the process of peening to prolong the life of metals.

Glass beads have also been used in the reborn again dolls industry, as a filling material
